[ Upstream commit 615d435400435876ac68c1de37e9526a9164eaec ]

Currently hda on tegra30 fails to open a stream with an input/output error.

For example:
speaker-test -Dhw:0,3 -c 2

speaker-test 1.2.2

Playback device is hw:0,3
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
Buffer size range from 64 to 16384
Period size range from 32 to 8192
Using max buffer size 16384
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 4096
was set buffer_size = 16384
0 - Front Left
Write error: -5,Input/output error
xrun_recovery failed: -5,Input/output error
Transfer failed: Input/output error

The tegra-hda device was introduced in tegra30 but only utilized in
tegra124 until recent chips. Tegra210/186 work only due to a hardware
change. For this reason it is unknown when this issue first manifested.
Discussions with the hardware team show this applies to all current tegra
chips. It has been resolved in the tegra234, which does not have hda
support at this time.

The explanation from the hardware team is this:
Below is the striping formula referenced from HD audio spec.
{ ((num_channels * bits_per_sample) / number of SDOs) >= 8 }

The current issue is seen because Tegra HW has a problem with boundary
condition (= 8) for striping. The reason why it is not seen on
Tegra210/Tegra186 is because it uses max 2SDO lines. Max SDO lines is
read from GCAP register.

For the given stream (channels = 2, bps = 16);
ratio = (channels * bps) / NSDO = 32 / NSDO;

On Tegra30, ratio = 32/4 = 8 (FAIL)
On Tegra210/186, ratio = 32/2 = 16 (PASS)
On Tegra194, ratio = 32/4 = 8 (FAIL) ==> Earlier workaround was
applied for it

If Tegra210/186 is forced to use 4SDO, it fails there as well. So the
behavior is consistent across all these chips.

Applying the fix in [1] universally resolves this issue on tegra30-hda.
Tested on the Ouya game console and the tf201 tablet.
